Butterfly Balloons is our ideal boutique enterprise, created out of 20 years piloting experience in Cappadocia and around the world. Mike and I have come a long way since May 2010. After spending the last decade in the biggest balloon operators of Cappadocia, we have decided to go on as we love to do it.

Instead of having more than 30 people in the baskets, we have limited the number to 16.

Instead of taking-off on the same site everyday, we started to plan the take-off site according to wind direction and speed.

Instead of trying to finish the flight as soon as possible, we started to give a guarantee for minimum flight durations.

The 'Butterfly Way' of ballooning in Cappadocia, has also inspired a few other companies and recently, we started to see some other pilots changing their take-off site day to day. We are proud of it.

In less than two years, we are number 1 on numerous travel forums, acknowledged by many guide books including Lonely Planet and, now the first choice of Rick Steves in the USA. Thank you to all our new-found friends on whose praise we are riding high. We focus on your individuality and our exclusiveness, mix it with fun and adventure, and we give you the flight of a lifetime over the stunning landscape of Cappadocia.

  • The experience was awesome! The breakfast and then commutation, everything was so amazingly controlled and processed. Lifetime experience.
  • A good experience with hit air balloom. The pilot with good skill can show the stunning sightseeing in capadoccia. Suggestion: booked directly to the company may get better price.
  • Excellent service. Good staff. Must be appreciated.
  • Butterfly balloons can be taken as one's first choice without a second thought. When I booked I even had lot of questions popped up in my mind,But as per experience they are out and out friendly and cool in all aspects. Query clearance- 4.5 , following up -4 , receiving -5 (we were welcomed with warm smile though we knocked there door at 3AM ), breakfast -5 , pilot's experience and interaction- 4.5 ,totally for whole butterfly balloon ride - 5 ..I was given a certificate and medal tooooo.😀👍. Must recommended!
  • Great company. We booked through our hotel and managed to get on the second flight. The second flight takes off 20 minutes after the main flight of 100 balloons so you will still get amongst the main balloons but will also have clear views as they descend. Minibuses were prompt picking us up from the hotel and they provided us with a light fruit, bread and cake breakfast before shuttling us off to the balloons. The flight itself was amazing and our pilot Gökhan was a pro very smooth landing and take off. He also was very informative about the sights around Göreme. The experience was capped off with a champagne breakfast and a certificate ceremony which was a nice touch. Would definitely recommend flying with these guys.
